Welcome to the Library!

Looking for committee minutes? Need information about prior legislators? Have questions about bills, votes, statutes, session laws, vetoes, or the legislative process? Want a quiet getaway with a fabulous view of downtown Raleigh? The North Carolina Legislative Library offers this and more!

Our mission is to meet the research and information needs of General Assembly members, their staffs, and legislative committees. We are also a resource for other state agencies and the public. Our website is chock-full of publications, tutorials, and historical collections.

For general information or research assistance, call us at 919-733-9390 or email us at library@ncleg.gov.
To obtain audio files of a recent committee meeting, email us at audio@ncleg.gov. We provide audio on CDs only. The cost is $1.25 if you pick up the CD, $3.00 if we mail it to you. Note: it may take 3-5 days after the meeting for audio files to be available.
